Different bids for periscope lens
Recently, the South Korean technology site The Elec claimed that we will see a so-called periscope lens with support for optical zoom in both Pro models of the iPhone 16, but that claim is now being countered.
According to well-known analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (cited by Macrumors), the periscope lens will only be in the iPhone 16 Pro Max, i.e. the most expensive model.
The reason is that the current lens simply does not fit in the iPhone 16 Pro, as it requires a lot of space.
Considering that the mobile phones in question will not be released until September 2024, it is of course not out of the question that Apple will have time to find an alternative solution.
Face ID under the screen
According to The Elec, the infrared camera used by Face ID may be placed under the screen in next year’s iPhone models.
The result can be that the mobile phone gets a full-coverage screen, in other words, we avoid both flab and the dynamic island.
Possibly, Apple chooses to only offer full-coverage screens in the iPhone 16 Pro and iPhone 16 Pro Max, this in order to increase interest in the more expensive models.
Faster working memory
It is still 8-9 months before the iPhone 15 is launched, but already rumors about the iPhone 16 have started to appear.
According to technology leaker ShrimpApplePro, among other things we will see support for LPDDR5X, a faster variant of the working memory used in the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max.
The new memory is also said to be more energy-efficient, something that could give a slightly longer battery life.
Otherwise, we will be offered an A18 Bionic chip based on 3-nanometer technology, reports Macrumors.
